    The official 4.2 swap post

    the 4.2's did not have the early/late 2000 thing. that applies only to the 3.8. yes you can use the oil pan/hb/flywheel/etc off of your 2002 3.8.

    Best gifts

    Try to think of something useful or consumable rather than something that will sit around collecting dust. My brother gave Omaha steaks. I thought that was an excellent gift. Ate them all and they were gone. A really nice LED flashlight would be good. You can never have enough flashlights.

    Stop someone from stealing and you lose your job...make sense :rolleyes:

    He or one of his employees notice someone stealing stuff--usually it's things like baby formula, candy, or shrimp. He notices where the thief puts the item, or it is obvious where it is. He intercepts the thief before they leave the store. He reaches wherever he knows the item is and...

    My bf is a manager at a large chain grocery store and he reaches in people's pockets, bags, strollers, etc. to recover items that people have stolen. If someone is stuffing their coat he yanks it open. Most of the time the store doesn't press charges but they ban the person from the store...

    UPDATE: Post# 72 ..what could be wrong now !? :-( ...please help !

    only get Ford o2 sensors that come with the correct connector, even if it means having them shipped from the US. The Ford computer is very finicky about other o2 sensors, especially Bosch ones. lambda actually does have a meaning. it is a unit of measure related to air fuel ratio. lambda is...

    swapping in a splitport motor to a 94, do you set the cam pos sens to 94 or 00 specs

    You can find top dead center on the compression stroke by removing the #1 spark plug, then put your finger over the plug hole and you will feel the compression stroke. then take your finger off of the plug hole and insert a wire or a pushrod. keep turning the engine until it gets to its highest...

    Waterpump?

    Since the car has lost coolant before, I would be checking the coolant level every day I was driving it. If the car overheats you can end up with some very expensive damage.

    swapping in a splitport motor to a 94, do you set the cam pos sens to 94 or 00 specs

    use the specs based on the computer in the car if you are doing the swap the easy way, that means you'd set it to 94 specs

    96 Cobra into a 2000 V6 in JAPAN!!!!

    the 94-98 vs 99-04 cars had some extreme changes in how the wiring, fuel system, and some other things were handled you're going to decide what your approach is if you want to leave some of the wiring in the car and keep the fuel system the same in the 2000, then you will want to find a...
